Tonight it finally dawned on me to let gravity do the work. It was easy enough to scrounge up some heavy & hollow bits for the job.

A new batch. My Secret Santa pipe is in there somewhere.

We're getting enough CPS makers that we can start our own guild or something.

I haven't. In fact, I tend to make my shank/stems on the thin side but my style is turning towards thicker shanked pipes. I'm actually forcing a mindset that says "make it thicker than you think it should be" and I'm getting to where I want to be most times. Nowhere near as chunky as an author though. We'll see though - you never know what's next.

That's cool and all. . .but I was thinking we could get James Owen to design our logo. This is probably going to require the formation of a committee.

There will be a meeting after Sunday school to determine who is bringing the coffee and cookies for the first meeting.
